Little Wing Film Festival is a volunteer-led organisation founded in 2017 as a way to make the film industry a more accessible and inclusive space for young people getting their foot in the door. In our first year, our handful of volunteers made a home in a small theatre above a pub in North London, screening films, running workshops, and awarding filmmakers with in-kind prizes to offer whatever we could to facilitate future projects. Since then we've delved further into curating opportunity pathways, championing the kinds of grassroots film we want to see in the future of film, and doing our part to make the film industry more accessible to young people from diverse backgrounds. This year we're we're piloting projects and ideas rooted in social impact ,and furthering our commitment to understanding how the medium of film can have a profound impact on teaching, changing minds and calling us to action.
We are a grassroots organisation with a very small, collaborative team who are familiar working with miniscule budgets. Our development and growth come about from dedication, creativity, resourcefulness and community collaborative. We are big believers in working for progress, not perfection, and want this to be a place where you can be creative, try new things, have autonomy over your projects, and learn along the way.
